Crosby was hit in the foot by a shot during the third period of the Penguins' 6-3 loss Friday night at Florida. He did not take part in practice Saturday and is listed as questionable by the team.

Crosby said Saturday the foot was better, but still a little stiff.

"We'll see ... I think it depends on the swelling," Crosby said of whether he will play against the defending Stanley Cup champion Lightning. "If it's swollen like this, we'll probably just wait. If it's still swollen, and because it's swollen, the left foot probably doesn't fit in a skate."

X-rays found no fractures. The primary treatment for the injury has been icing the foot.

Crosby has 12 goals and 28 points in 23 games this season. He has scored a goal in each of his last five games.
